La Rural

My big fun this week was going to the agriculture and livestock show at the expo center next to the Embassy (La Rural). John and I went mid-morning last Sunday before the crowds got really big. I was having so much fun watching the horses that he left me in the arena where I stayed the rest of the day. I tried to go back yesterday after going to the gym at the embassy, but there were hundreds of people waiting in line to get in – evidently the last weekend is the BIG weekend. It looked the same today with livestock and horse trailers parked up and down the street – right in the middle of the city.

The rest of the week was pretty routine – just back and forth to work and settling in.

Here’s some photos from La Rural.
